Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #920 SUN, JAN 05 (01-05-2020):

#1- The good the bad and the ugly regarding the Latin Music scene:
Why it sucks and is getting worse (as if the US music scene is any better):
DYK there is a Mexican rock group “Mana” the Latino locals call the Latin Beatles? Although by US and British rock standards their talent and songs are of strictly Holiday Inn "lounge lizard" quality. However, since they were the first on the Latin rock scene with original (though terribly derivative) rock music,  they became immensely popular.
#2- DYK that there are TWO different kinds of “lag time” in Latin America?
There’s Central American “lag time” and South American “lag time” and there’s a big difference that needs explaining

#3- Of the 20 Latin countries, can you guess which 4 have the populations with the highest educational level and cultural acuity?

#4- A “startling boots on the ground“ report from Chile:

#5- US military bases in Latin America:
What you didn’t know about this revolting development will certainly surprise you
